"Love, Death, and Disease are all uninvited guests — you rarely expect or plan for them, and yet they appear without fail. These ceramic sculptures are the embodiments of past lovers, spirits of loved ones departed, reflections of myself. Clay binds the spirit, giving my sentiments independence, agency, and freedom. Despite pain and trauma, these beings are set free through the act of their making and become playful and comforting. They take my heartbreak and betrayal in Love, loneliness and devastation in Death, and the agony and embarrassment of Disease. With childlike veneration I release my torments by giving them physical form, and in setting them free find myself left with a refreshing wellness, a blossoming heart, irrevocably at peace." - Colin J.
